YOUNGSTERS who can snap the beauty of their surroundings in one image are encouraged to enter the Capture Nature photography competition.

Held in recognition of World Environment Day on June 5, it is open to 12 to 18 year olds who live or attend a school in the City of Joondalup.

This year’s theme is again Capture Nature: Explore your local beach, bushland and wetlands.

Photos must be taken within the City and include a caption to describe what the image means to the photographer.

Entries will be judged on their creativity, composition, technique and message and prizes will be awarded for first ($300), second ($200), third ($175) and fourth place ($125).

“This competition provides an opportunity for young people with an interest in their local environment to explore and capture nature in its best light,” Mayor Albert Jacob said.

Photos must be submitted electronically at www.joondalup.wa.gov.au by 4pm on April 10.

Anyone unable to do so can call 9400 4271.
